so if you think as you say "have Kobe and have some minor moves made this season and hope for the best." is the way to go your wrong, you can't afford to build around a player that's threatening to bolt and if you think that a couple minor moves will assage kobe's demands for the team to make moves your wrong again... maybe it's thou who should step back from the kool-aid counter and take a realistic view of the situation
I may be drinking KoolAid in my assessment of Kobe's trade value. I have no idea what his real value is. I like to think it's: Deng, Gordon, Wallace, and #9.
Maybe I'm smokin' something.
